Application for Free and Reduced-price School Meals

Be sure to fill out the free and reduced-price meal application to see if you qualify.

It is important that each family completes and submits a free and reduced-price meal application to LEARN each year, in order to determine eligibility for free and reduced-price meals and other programs, like the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), discounted technology and WiFi programs, and more.

During the transition back to normal school operations in school year 2022-2023, LEARN has opted in to the School Meals Assistance Revenue for Transition (SMART) funds providing meals (one breakfast and one lunch per student per day) at no cost for all students at the beginning of the school year.  Those funds end the evening of November 30, 2022.

On December 1, 2022, LEARN schools and LEARN school-based programs begin charging for school meals, depending on income and student status.

It is critical that households submit a free and reduced-price meal application as soon as possible to determine a student's eligibility for this school year and avoid unpaid meal charges.

Completing and submitting an application will also help your child's school raise additional funds to help us make meals available to all students at no cost for as long as possible.  Note: Households that do not submit a free or reduced-price application or whose child is no directly certified, will automatically default to full pay when the SMART funds conclude.

To determine your student's eligibility, please read the parent letter and complete the application below for the 2022-2023 school year.

Once the application is completed, please print and sign. Please note an adult household member must sign the application. LEARN recommends you keep a copy of the completed form for your records and mail or fax the completed original form to the LEARN Magnet Office:
